Central Park Episode Ten: A Fish Called Snakehead Recap & Review

Apple TV+’s Central Park episode ten, A Fish Called Snakehead, is the season one finale. It is a great way to end the season but will also have you begging for more!

I have been loving Apple TV+’s Central Park since the very beginning. This format of a musical comedy sitcom is pure genius. I adore the whole cast and the songs just seem to get better and better. They are always getting stuck in my head too.

The season one finale is available to watch now and boy, does it seem like it came way too soon. I am not ready for this season to end but the good news is that Central Park has already been picked up for a season two. And with the way this season ended, I just cannot wait for that time to come!

Warning: Central Park episode ten spoilers ahead.

The episode begins with a couple of joggers spotting a mysterious fish in the Harlem Meer in Central Park – complete with ominous music. The Tillermans are getting ready to go to the Farmer’s Market when Owen gets the call. He knows there is a Snakehead fish to catch and he is going to take it very seriously. The cast and creators actually talked about this episode and event in a Central Park interview I watched, so I have really been looking forward to it.

The whole family decides to go with him because of course, they don’t want to miss the “hell fish”. Birdie makes a great transition to turn the story over to Bitsy and that is when I recognized the comparison. An invasive fish that will destroy their habitat just to win. Sure sounds like what she has been doing all season, doesn’t it?

The Mayor ran a pole and found out that Bitsy is very unlikable. In fact, a strangler did better than here in the likability poll. They bring in a likability coach and that brings out some of my favorite moments of all of Central Park season one. “New York Doesn’t Like Your Face” is one of the best songs and it is simply hilarious.

I don’t want to give any major spoilers for the ending but let’s just say I am counting down the days until season two drops! This series ended up taking me by surprise and becoming one of my favorite animated shows.
